Stewards’ reports reveals shocking suffering of horses used in Grand National

Posted on the 23rd April 2018

It has been a week since the notorious Grand National meeting finished, leaving one horse dead and many others suffering injuries.

On the first day of the three-day event, Lilbitluso was killed at the Canal Turn fence on the Grand National course in the Foxhunters’ Chase.

The Stewards’ Reports from the main Grand National race on Saturday 14 April reveals a number of other incidents, and makes for uncomfortable reading. For example, one horse bled from the nose and two were reported to be lame.

Our press release (linked below) gives further information.

Please also make sure you sign and share our petition which calls on the government to intervene and take urgent action over race horse deaths.
